Jennifer Piper is a multidisciplinary, cross-media storyteller whose award-winning writing includes plays, cabaret, essays, radio, factual series and short film.

JP’s plays are available via Australian Plays Online, with cabaret ‘At Home with Anne Ziet́e’ shortlisted for the Queer Playwriting Award. Her short films have screened at various film festivals, and her essay ‘Undyingly Queer’ will appear in ‘Queering the Vampire Narrative’ later this year, published by Brill Sense.

2021’s short drama ‘Fine Bone China’ and short documentary ‘The Golden Rollers’ continue to be well-received by audiences and industry, with the latter selected for Revelation Film Festival 2022. The Binary Coalescence Project, a series of scientifically-accurate allegories for astrophysics principals, is currently in post-production.

JP was a 2022 AIDC Leading Lights participant and one of four invited to pitch, with the new project ‘Old Enough To Know Better’ currently in development.

Call me JP

Tell me about something you really love. There’s nothing better than sharing someone else’s excitement.

Or, if you like, ask me about:

  • My bookshelf diorama project
  • Learning to roller skate
  • Audrey Edith (dog, life coach and style icon)
  • Why maths is cool


“Remarkable, relatable and riotously funny”

Piper had the crowd in stitches with her portrayals of her characters. 

Milk Bar Mag

“Skilfully presented”

Well thought-out, socially accurate, and theatrically entertaining.

The Westsider

“So real and potent”

When the Queen made her grand entrance into the theatre, she was so striking and imposing – every set of eyes in the theatre was set on her. It was so quiet in the theatre you could have heard a pin drop.
